"After years of suffering from back pain, I discussed the benefits of Pilates with my medical practitioners.  They agreed that the strengthening of core muscles would be beneficial to my overall health and provide necessary back and body strength and flexibility. I researched various class formats before deciding on AMA Pilates at The Brampton Academy of Martial Arts.  Before commencing classes, I had a personal assessment with Pilates Instructor Kim Cyr, which provided an opportunity to view my current medical status and to create personal goals for myself. 

The classes are small, allowing for individual attention with exercises modified to best meet my personal needs.
After the first 10 week session, I have gained basic flexibility and strength which would have been impossible without this training.  I am currently enrolled in two weekly beginner sessions to continue to build my understanding of the proper way to perform each exercise for maximum benefit. I continue to look forward to the benefits of Pilates through professional training at AMA."


 “One of the challenges I frequently face as a physiotherapist dealing with clients with multiple musculoskeletal dysfunctions is planning for ongoing management of the condition when the client has achieved maximal benefit from formal physiotherapy.  A foundation for self-management is laid but most clients feel a need for an ongoing supervised exercise program. 

I was delighted to find Kim Cyr through a mutual client.  Kim has an excellent understanding of pathological conditions that require specific exercise approaches.  She customizes and progresses programs to meet the rehabilitation needs of the client.  Feedback from patients referred to Kim has been nothing but positive.  It is reassuring to know that our clients are in Kim’s capable hands.”
